from the Daily Nebraskan
Having retired from the DN once already, this was Round 2 of final cartoons.
There was some rampant speculation about what my final cartoon was going to be, and I really didn’t know. I had been really pleased with my previous retirement cartoon from 2001 and it was going to be tough to follow in my mind.
If I remember right, I was at a party and someone was pressing me to find out what the final cartoon was, so I told her that I wouldn’t tell her what it was, but to place a bet with her friends that it would include dogs and firefighters.
I think I was just telling her that to end that part of the conversation, but when the time came, I thought it would be fun to actually include dogs and firefighters, just in case she really did place that bet with her friends.
